BLACK PEPPER SHRIMP
- 3 pounds shrimp, with shells on
- 8 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons chopped garlic
- 4 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Rinse and drain the shrimp, then arrange
in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Set aside.
In a saucepan, melt the butter over a medium heat. Add the garlic and
saute 3 to 4 minutes. Pour the butter over the shrimp and toss to coat.
Sprinkle about half the pepper over the shrimp.
Bake until the shrimp are pink, about 5 minutes.
Use a spatula to turn the shrimp. Sprinkle with remaining pepper,
then bake another 2 to 3 minutes.
